Ask for an authorization to install a swimming pool enclosure ?
Find out if authorization to install a pool enclosure is necessary. Depending on the size of your pool (and the country regulation), the height of the enclosure you want to install, you may be required to do some paperwork at your town hall.
AUTHORIZATION TO INSTALL A POOL SHELTER: PRIOR DECLARATION OR BUILDING PERMIT?
This procedure does not have to be an obstacle for purchase. In France for instance, this type of construction may present some administrative procedures. Know that it is extremely rare to not get the green light for installing a pool shelter, but this can slightly slow down the installation. In fact, there may be a delay in obtaining the building permit if this is necessary.
The procedures for your town hall concerning the installation of your pool enclosure will be different if the pool is already built or not.
We invite you to approach your town hall! For the latest regulations in force, it may be that your shelter has to be subjected to local specifications.
IN WHAT CASES SHOULD YOU REQUEST A CONSTRUCTION PERMIT TO INSTALL A SWIMMING POOL SHELTER?
Depending on your particular situation, for the installation of your pool shelter you should make a prior declaration of work. You would get it at the town hall. You would only need it if the height of the enclosure is more than 1,80m and the surface of the pool exceeds 10m2 and is less than 100m2.
If the height of the shelter to install is equal to 1.80m you will be required to request a building permit. This is clearly the case with high pool shelters. You will not have to do this to install a low pool enclosure. The installation of a flat roof also does not need a declaration or construction permit. In fact, it will not usually exceed 1m!
